Magnetoswitchable controlled hydrophilicity/hydrophobicity of electrode surfaces using alkyl-chain-functionalized magnetic particles: application for switchable electrochemistry.

Abstract

Magnetic nanoparticles consisting of undecanoate-capped magnetite (average diameter approximately 4.5 nm; saturated magnetization, M(s), 38.5 emu g(-1)) are used to control and switch the hydrophobic or hydrophilic properties of the electrode surface. A two-phase system consisting of an aqueous buffer solution and a toluene phase that includes the suspended… (More)
